4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Good ratio at most parties

5 College Freshman

Academics: Absolutely love all of my professors. They really care about their students and are experts in their field.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Admissions and President have been working studiously in recent years to increase diversity on campus. Far more ethnically diverse and friendly than some would have you believe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall is terrible, Tiger Inn is good but overpriced, and Coffee Shop is extremely limited in options and kinda pricey.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships are the foundation of being able to attend this school. Only two or three students here are actually paying the full tuition.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Secure campus populated by brothers who care about each other, however campus is not closed and is open to townies at any time of day, and facilities are usually left unlocked. However, police presence and student activism to fight serious crime is enough to warrant a four-star rating.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Very limited field of possible majors, and even fewer minors. Graduate school is almost required nowadays to get a decent job, so it's okay I guess. You don't have to declare a major until second semester of Sophomore year, which leaves you with plenty of time to explore the liberal arts education.

2 College Freshman

Majors: Science programs are hard as hell at this school, though the degree is by far worth more than most nowadays, as graduates from this school are so few and far between, with a large amount of people cracking and dropping out before they reach sophomore year. Honestly, it seems like it gets far easier after freshman year.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Usually good parties with good ratio of guys/girls. Most fraternities tend to run out of alcohol fairly quickly though, which can be discouraging to party-goers. Fraternity Circle is the only real place to go for parties though, unless you know people at Longwood or Sweet Briar. The Circle is usually vibrant on weekends, though dead weekends do happen on occasion.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Farmville is a great town, though we do have to share it with Longwood kids, who are annoying, cargo-short wearing dickheads. We end up taking most of their females though, which is awesome.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Love the fraternities on campus! Awesome parties most weekends; occasional dead weekends. Parties are always happening on football weekends, and Greek Life plays a huge role in the tailgates.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No real clue how the off-campus housing is, given that I'm a freshman who is required to live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not terrible, could be better though.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Facilities are great because of the tradition shared on campus. Athletic centers are very impressive with great awards won by sports teams. Our library ranks number four in the nation. Library offers free copies and even renting laptops. There are many sources available in the library.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: School could do better on food. Lacks any real options that are healthy or really excellent food.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It is a small town. There are restaurants like Applebee's, McDonald's, Burger King and many more. There are options for Chinese or Japanese. Walmart is the only location many shop because it is the only place to shop very big. Many events are held mostly on campus. Bands and DJs are great for Friday and Saturday night. Greek week provides the best entertainment because of students from all over the country attending our Greek weeks parties.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Hampden-Sydney College offers courses that provides concrete skills in careers. The courses would sometimes entail working on projects along with guidance from professors. The academics are very vigorous because professors are not very concerned about publications and research but educating students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: One unique aspect is that in the government department students have not much workloads other than readings. Class discussions enlightens a in depth analysis of issues discussed in class. Many students find themselves with internships freshmen year. The networking is great. There is a connection in the learning aspects. The opportunities are endless.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Many different options. Great parties.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing can be cheaper. Not many spaces.

5 College Junior

Academics: The amount of personal attention is incredible

5 College Junior

Academics: Our course load is rigorous but fulfilling and exciting
